Inclusion in Housing Video

Next in our series of Inclusion Awards videos celebrating Inclusion in Canberra, Andrew and Lud Kerec from Renaissance Homes share their story about building accessible and livable homes in Canberra following Lud’s cycling accident in early 2010, resulting in Lud becoming a complete C5 quadriplegic.

The video highlights the benefits of accesible design and how accessible homes enhance the quality of life for all occupants at all stages of life. The cost to do this is minimal, making it very cost effective in the long run.

Andrew also talks about the mandatory accessibility standards which will be included in the National Construction Code and what features a home built to those standards means. The ACT Government’s public commitment to adopt these standards from September 2022.
